The Second Marriage by Gill Paul
**** 4/5 rating
A fictional novel based on two intriguing and famous women in the 20th century, Jackie Kennedy/Onassis and opera singer Maria Callas. Two very strong and iconic women who were unlucky in love.
I had to keep reminding myself the novel was a work of fiction but nevertheless I was hooked. Told from the view of both women, who ultimately ignored the shortcomings, suffered humiliation but fell for the charm of Ari Onassis.
Jackie and Maria should never have found themselves vying for the attention or love of Onassis but love is a powerful emotion. Gill Paul managed to capture the essence of her characters thus making the novel a success.
A good read, recommended.
Thanks to Gill Paul, HarperCollins and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read this book for which I have written an honest and unbiased review.
